about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. in the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romne

. mr. carlson, mitt romney could live anywhere he wants -- except the white house -- and so he chose to sell his mansion in utah and buy a mansion in liberal la jolla, california. why did he decide to settle in california? >> mitt romney -- the name rings a bell -- as someone who is from la jolla, i would say he inexplicable, to be honest with you. i would have been happier had mitt romney moved to highland park, texas, for example. there you go. or louisiana. i will say if you are interested in drinking complicated coffee and going surfing, la jolla is fantastic. >> he does not drink coffee. >> that is right. >> just froth. >> i ask you this question last year. i will ask it again because you are qualified, of all the in this room, you know more about this than any. you are personally close to the clintons. do you believe that she will run for president in the next cycle, and do you think she should? >> do i think she should? absolutely. i work backwards and say, will she be a good president? the answer is no, she would be a great president. it is interesting now that we have moved
the middle east story and the previous story, president obama is now reelected. not going to help mitt romney if you would criticize the president, as it would pre-election. >> jon: and more from the sequester fear playbook. >> senate leader harry reid sinks to a new low trying it tie the deaths of the u.s. marines to the sequester cuts. and a new study tells how the political press failed in their mission leading to the election. details next on news watch. tudy by the pew research study for excellence in journalism examines a personal portrayal of candidates in 50 major news outlets over a ten week period. they found 72% of the coverage has been negative for barack obama and 71% has been negative for mitt romney. back in 2008, 57% of media coverage was negative for john mccain and 31% for barack obama. but the real story is where those narratives come from, the study shows, jim, that political journalists are not really investigating, but sort of following the narrative laid out by the campaign. surprised? >> not really. there's a limit to what a reporter watching a candidate through six st
. and tonight it's etch-a-sketch anniversary day. one year ago mitt romney's communication director accidently gave the candidate a new nickname. it was on cnn during the g.o.p. primaries and they were answering a question from a non-qualified journalist who apparently snuck into the cnn studio without permission. >> is there a concern that the pressure from the santorum gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right that it would hurt him for moderate voters in the general election. >> well, i think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. everything changes. it's almost like an etch-a-sketch, you can kind of shake it up and we start all over again. >> to this day that i'm asked to sign etch-a-sketches. i wish i could say i caused mitt romney's defeat. but after the 47% video credit for mitt romney's failure goes to one person, mitt romney. the cost of looking good will no longer be exacted on welfare of animals in europe. cosmetic products including toiletries that are tested on animals have been banned by the e.u. since 2004 but now any cosmetic product that possesses an

an assault weapon bans. >> i'm with you. red state democrats up for reelection, states carried by romney, but they have to win it in 2014, they face pressure from both the right and to some extent programs as much but not necessarily from the level. the head of the change campaign committee said it will hurt democrats. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, bu
to the children and that's what they did to break the ice. you'll remember netanyahu sported romney in the 2012 election. they were very good friends and his support was overt and vocal. let's go to netanyahu. he brought up things--first at the press conference, and here are some of the things he talked about. >> israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of two states for two peoples. we extend our hands in peace and in friendship to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit along with the visit of secretary of state kerry will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. >> michael: tom president obama will be going to palestine to meet with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. here is more on at that same press conference. >> obama: i'm pleased to announce that we'll take steps to ensure there is no interruption in funding for iron dome. as as a result of decisions that i made last year israel will receive approximately $250 million this fiscal year and we will continue to work with congress on future funding of iron dome. >> michael: the president talkin
issue given mitt romney had a similar plan in massachusetts. when you look at it today you really have to compare, especially given what steve is saying the status quo, which is it's a huge burden on individuals, families and corporate america as it stands now, healthcare costs, versus trying to implement something that is intended to reduce those costs. >> bret: i guess when you hear doctors who are opposed to obama care, or concerned about it. they talk about the $18 million added to medicaid and they talk about it already, doctor shortage and that underpayment for medicare already happens. if you think there is a shortage now, just wait until this thing kicks in in 2014. i guess that is the biggest thing you hear. >> and it points to the distinction between health insurance and real healthcare. you could have sham health insurance, a lot of americans will get. but if you don't a doctor, if doctors refuse to treat because of the payment schedules that are obscenely low that no doctor will take. already today, the medicare patients are turned away from a lot of doctors. if that is wid
where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a lot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this
-ended the republican primary might even have produced a different nominee. as mitt romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the michigan primary, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. we were close, former representative bob walker, a grich ally says. grich a gingrich and an toreum couldn't agree. in the end gingrich told me too hard to negotiate. so much going on there! where do i start? >> like i said this is one of the great untold stories. >> that is hilarious. >> how would that have worked? i'm curious. >> it didn't! >> i'm asking this question seriously because -- >> that is the point. >> because back in 2008, the reason why mike huckabee got beaten by john mccain is because fred thompson and john mccain struck this same deal and made the difference in south carolina. how is this going to work? >> first important to situate ourselves to february when this happened in the gop primary. romney was really struggling and clear he had a tough time winning his home state. there was emerging anybody but
going to happen? do you see seiu endorsing mitt romney? >> not mitt romney. he's history. but the fact of the matter is, if the republican party wants to broaden itself out, going forward, they will choose canned -- candidates and issues that attract labor -- >> we have the very best! we have the very best issues about labor, we want to lower the taxes on working people and more liberty for working people. we want to protect america's borders and from terrorism for working people -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that has nothing to do with what we are talking about. >> we are not talking about the borders. you are conflating a burch of stuff that has nothing to do with unions itch the idea that working people is union membership is a fraud. working people need job creation. and conservative approximatelies will bring t. liberal policies will crush it -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that's proven to be untrue. >> shannon: gentlemen. we talked about the numbers. neap 1953, it is peak for union membership here. 26% of the labor force. now it's 11.3. if the unions are vital and so powerful, why t
romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statements that he made. as i say it, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it. that's cowardly. >>alisyn: harry reid did not say it was because of the sequester. what he did on the floor was he linked the two. he didn't say it was because of the sequester that this terrible tragedy happened. he was talking about the tragedy and then he just segued in his own head and verbally to talking about the sequester and about how we have to be careful. harry reid does this a lot, by the way. his spokes people are forever apologizing about the clumsiness. >>steve: his people tried to walk it back and they suggested the same thing you have. but when you listen to it where there are these dead marines and the sequester, he clearly has linked it. whether he wanted to or not, he linked it and it's wrong. not only should he apologize to the marines, he sh
: well, the last time i was in israel, where you see that windmill over my shoulder, mitt romney was giving a speech. and during that trip, it was netanyahu who seemed to align himself with the president of israel. now these two leaders is trying to show the closeness of the relationship. to say all that friction was in the past, we got along so well, such that there was one moment that stood out. the drama of the morning, perhaps, was during that red carpet welcoming ceremony. the two of them walking side by side at the tarmac at the international airport in tel aviv. you saw the president take his jacket off and throw it over his shoulder. netanyahu awkwardly thought to himself, what do i do here? do i take it off? do i not. and he did the same as if to show not only were they so comfortable together, they could take their jackets off, the same shirts and blue ties. it was a moment that was really made for the public in this country that has viewed this as being a wide gap between the two leaders. but the primary topic in the conversation for the two later today behind closed d

romney's former vice president's running mate, congressman paul ryan. but first, senator rand paul of kentucky who recently complained the gop is becoming in his words stale and moss covered, criticism many believed is aimed at senator john mccain. >> i want you to clarify, there has been a rift between you and him. you suggested the other day that some of the senators and everyone assumed you were referring to senator mccain when you said the gop of old has grown stale and moss covered. you didn't want to say who you were referring to, but you said everybody knows who you were referring to. were you referring to senator mccain? >> i would say figurative sort of sentence in the sense that it isn't to be taken literally. it was also meant for humor. and i think it garnered a little humor, but it is to say we as a gop need to embrace new ideas and grow our party in a way that some haven't. but i didn't intend it to be directed at one person. >> but he was one of those persons that you were referring to? >> it is a figurative, illusion, it is not meant to be taken for one person. he a

the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au

's not forget, probably sorted mitt romney in certain ways. what the prime minister wants is to solidify his relationship to the best possible way. he also wants to -- to make obama see that security problems, as he understands them, and to impress upon him the seriousness of israel's security situation. he figures he has him here to two. he's going to push some themes pretty hard. >> iran is programs the most important? i realize most important certainly from netanyahu's perspective and very, very important from obama's perspective. the official line, of course, is they're not far apart at all. they see eye to eye, shoulder to shoulder. the truth is they have very different timelines for this netanyahu thought in six monthsings which is now, that iran would be approaching the nuclear threshold. obama said last week, from a year. so they're going to try to hash this out to some degree and present a common front action and of course netanyahu doesn't really truly believe that obama would use military force to stop iran. obama is worried in a netanyahu would use military force prematurely. so
. it was clear that what ryan has put up in what he calls a budget and what he and mr. romo ran on was -- romney ran on was the republican platform. now they bring it back as if there was no election. >> neil: do you think the budget submitted by senator patty murray, which doesn't approach balance and increases spending and increases taxes, is what the american people voted for back in november? is that what they voted for? >> do you know there's no one that challenges that america's on the road to recovery. if you think for one minute just saying that you are cutting spending, that doesn't mean that you are cutting savings. it doesn't mean you're not -- more money. >> neil: even under the -- we're cutting the growth. are you saying -- >> you're talking about -- jo congressman, yes or no, do you think cutting spending should be a goal? yes or no. >> should i think cutting -- yes, it's how you cut it, of course. everybody believes in cutting. >> neil: what would you cut? >> there's so much money that's already been cut. if we had the obama law, things were cut there. ryan knows it, because he to

. they are not sympatico, there is still an assumption that netanyahu is still in mitt romney's camp. >> hal: let's be real clear as a full disclosure that never gets done. andrea mitchell is married to alan greenspan, the former head of the fed. and he was an acolyte of ayn rand. if you look at the age difference she was a trophy wife at the time. i'm glad they stuck together. but initially you can tell she was his hot young politician kind of wife. that being said, it is never stated that andrea mitchell -- every time she talks about anything dealing with monetary issues, it should be tattooed on her forehead so you know who you are talking to. it's like when clarence thomas's wife talking about religious freedom and the right not to have health care you should say by the way. that being said, it is interesting to me what she says that what is botched about this relationship is that they are not sympatico, there's not a buddy system. where you would never say that about any of our other allies. and it may be from some group -- if we don't have this no daylight relationship

statement, i see this as a deliberate thing that he has said. much the same as when he accused mitt romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statement that he made, and as i've said, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before a formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it, cowardly. >> i will say that, you know, that it's with his statement that was issued by his office, if it's-- i find it difficult to say to think it was sort after clumsy statement that he made on the senate floor, other than maybe if his staff was just serving, increasing the problem for him. but i'm curious, i mean, you know, this whole idea of using a tragedy and this is a horrible tragedy, political ammunition, what's happened? >> well, i think that you see a lack of character. we have seen this whole scare tactic being used to, you know, by the administration and even by the president when it comes to sequestration, but to take an event, a tragic event which also happened
't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things get difficult. and that's a difficult list. >> people assume that iran may be overshadowing this trip, in a sense, syria has overtaken even iran because of the suggestion that chemical weapons have been used, both sides trying to blame the other side. what do we really know about what may have happened here? >> reporter: n
, a source told me mitt romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my po
women. he was despicable in what he said about sandra fluke. but mitt romney talked about the 47%. they may not like each other but they are working together to alienate most of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. despite the fact that 57% of americans support the nra, why do they keep winning? for gun owners, winning this battle is not the only thing, it's the important thing. background check, 90% of americans support them. let your member of congress and senator know that for you on this issue winning is the only thing. also, you probably have seen this scene by the way, from last week's cpac convention where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american who is doing a black tea about black people who joined the tea party. >>> and going wobbly on ashley judd and taking down other democrats wither had. key democrats, including hillary clinton and bill clinton are lining up with other democrats. fasten your seat belt. >>> finally, why is cnn's dana bash running after michele bachmann. what is it that
to their communities. >> now, the republican party -- mitt romney talked about during the campaign briefly, he talked about nuclear energy and the need. but republicans in general, the energy issue has tended to be sort of stereotype as climate change. do republicans need to, as we are talking about sort of the need for republican renaissance, rebirth, call it what you will, do republicans need to think more broadly about energy and how it fits into this rebranding of the party? and if so, are there one, two or three things that the party should absolutely -- i assume nuclear is part of this, that the party absolutely should embrace to say, look, we're not just the guys that are antiwhat the democrats are proposing on energy and everything else. >> they need to think more broad low on just about everything, i think, but certainly on energy. one of those things is to say, look, we want clean air. we want a good quality of life for people. so that means we need to look at clean energy. cleaner energy means less air pollutants which means healthier people. if you can call something that's contagious an
that netenyahu's closeness, what should we call it, bon homie with mitt romney, there was a lot of, a lot of armchair what is it, analysis of the relationship between the two men. and they seem to really be overcompensating for whatever daylight exists between them. they were like literally wearing matching outfits. >> holding hands. >> there was the ipad app. the unshakeable unbreakable alliance logo and the actual pomp and circumstance. i thought it was really interesting, netenyahu's office released this statement after president obama's speech -- p.m. benjamin netenyahu thanks u.s. president barack obama for his unreserved support for the state of israel. prime minister netenyahu shares president obama's view regarding a need to advance peace that insures the security of israel's citizens. if that is not like acme-like boilerplate, official statement i don't know what is. >> these two guys need each other more than ever and netenyahu has a government and a coalition that is not right behind him. that's actually going to be an obstacle to what him and obama want to do and obama is a se
that election. he turned off women. he was despicable in what he said about sandra fluke. but mitt romney talked about the 47%. they may not like each other but they are working together to alienate most of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. joen walsh in san francisco. the city hall right behind her there. she should run that place. >> thanks, chris. >> you did a good job and explained by your performance here tonight and honest responses to my question, the problem. >>> coming up, assault weapons plan is ban. 67% americans do support assault weapons ban. why does the nra keep winning? if progressives want to win, draw the line, now background checks. 90% of americans support them. let's let your member of congress know that from you on this issue, winning is the only thing. also, you have probably seen this scene from last week's cpac conference where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american doing a documentary called "black tea" about why some black people actually joined the tea party. >>> going wobbly on a
is on the backs of the american taxpayers. charles: this is one of the romney's piece about the president. do you think there is a sense that it won't have to be paid back? >> this is so much different than a home mortgage. you have to save a down payment, you have to have a job that you have to have the income that can be rationally used to pay back the mortgage. a student loan is much different. this will be paid back on the expectation of future earnings of the student. if you look at the ways this is structured right now, clearly the government does not anticipate that some of these borrowers are going to pay this money back. if you do not pay it back over 25 years -- the interest rates and whether these loans are forgiven or paid back at all is ultimately up to congress. we can win the allegiance of all these voters by forgiving their loans. i think it is a very serious possible scenario. charles: overall, student loans have taken over everything at this point. >> you are talking about $588 billion given out to the younger generation. marco rubio pointed out he had personally just finished p
the juicy earmarks are for special interests. want to know why mitt romney had to fiddle his taxes to get up to a 14% tax rate? which, by the way, is a lower tax rate than a solitary hospital orderly pays walking down the halls of rhode island hospital at night. how does he get it so he has to fiddle his taxes to get up to a rate lower than a hospital orderly pays? how do romney and the hedge fund billionaires pull that trick off? look here in alli babba's cave for the carried interest exception. do you want to know where exxonmobil, which is the richest and most profitable corporation in the history of the world, where exxonmobil gets its hands into the american taxpayers' pockets? look at the big oil subsidies in alli babba's cave. want to know how corporate jets get special favored tax treatment compared to the commercial jets that ordinary mortals fly? look at the accelerated depreciation schedules in ali baba's cave of tax tricks. if using the phrase, "left-wing manifesto" seems a little strident, a little exaggerated about a budget proposal for 50% spending cuts and 50% revenues and yo
. that this is not going to be something we sideline or in the words of mitt romney kicked down the road. >> yeah, that was epic huh? >> hal: holy -- if you want -- let's talk about for a second the perception of the republican party's relationship with israel, and the reality of the democrat's position in their relationship with israel. because republicans ran a guy who did two amazing things during the last campaign. he said openly that's something where you really -- it's never going to be solved and you basically just kick the can down the road and make it the next guy's problem. >> which is an unbelievable thing for a presidential candidate to say about an issue that large. >> hal: especially when you leave a few weeks later to go there to campaign for money. >> and bring donors with you. >> hal: right. and in your sensitivity have your fund raiser on a holiday. remember that? >> yeah. >> hal: they scheduled it on a holiday -- and they were like well -- we'll do it quietly, like we won't serve wine or something. and it's like dude that's not the point! >> no. >> hal: so
? >> this district is definitely red. it heavily favored mitt romney in the presidential race. the state legislature which is controlled by republicans, they have drawn this district for a republican to be able to win it. so it would be very, very difficult for any democrat to secure a win here. that being said though, if anybody can do it, i think elizabeth colbert bush has the best chance. she's well-funded. she's doing well on the campaign trail. she has her famous brother who is helping her out which is getting her a lot of media attention. and perhaps most importantly she's a woman. she's going to be able to go head to head with mark sanford and throw a lot of these personal failings in his face and perhaps get a following among women voters that a man simply could not do. >> going to be interesting. that's for sure. gina smith, we'll be talking with you again. thank you. >> thanks. >>> it is time for the big three and today's topics, what went right, happy anniversary, and best week, worst week. let's bring in the panel, susan del percio, morris reed, and contributor for "newsweek" and the dai
